Knock, Knock… is thing on???

Sunday afternoon and no entries yet? I can’t allow that. Here is something quick to get things started.


Here is my non-competing entry:

The Planet Mercury, Day 88 (Sans Fanfare)


added a new render with better lighting.


Relatively quick entry, pure:

Also a 5 sec animation:

Full resolution:

Rendered in Cycles, post-processing was done in Gimp.

Nice picture Evivivi, I really like the subtle sparkles in it. My first thought was particle system, but it laso looks like you used the glare filter on the rendering fireflies.

One really needs to look at the full resolution image to really appreciate this piece.

Well done.

@Ryeath, Thanks! You’re right about the glare filter, I thought it was a clever way to cover up the lack of samples…

thx Photox, was a struggle, but I now know how to replace renders, without having images pile up.
